Russia: Oooh! Another chance to be mean and petty!

December 29, 2012

If you’re a priest, that’s practically your job description.

President Vladimir Putin has signed a bill banning Americans from adopting Russian children, making the legislation official less than 24 hours after his office received it from parliament.

The bill has angered Americans and Russians who argue it victimises children to make a political point, cutting off a way out of frequently dismal orphanages for thousands of children….

UNICEF estimates there are about 740,000 children not in parental custody in Russia while about 18,000 Russians are on the waiting list to adopt a child.

The law also blocks dozens of Russian children now in the process of being adopted by American families from leaving the country…

And the kicker..

A spokesman with Russia’s dominant Orthodox Church said that the children adopted by foreigners and raised outside the church will not “enter God’s kingdom”.

‘God’s kingdom’ ends at the Russian border. Who knew?
